Michael J. Fox and his wife Tracy Pollan are one of Hollywood’s most inspirational couples. For almost thirty years, they have been devotedly married, and during their relationship’s highs and lows—particularly Fox’s struggle with Parkinson’s disease—they have supported one another.
In honor of their 35th wedding anniversary, the actor paid a heartfelt homage to his loving spouse.
The 62-year-old Back to the Future actor has posted several pictures of himself and Tracy on social media throughout the years.
In the description for the photo, Fox wrote, “35 years of laugher, living, listening, and loving you.” “Thank you very much for everything. You have my deepest love, Mike.
“I really do love you!”In the comment section that was provided, Pollan responded. She also honored her husband in a message on Instagram:
“Congrats on your anniversary, my love. Here’s to many more exciting journeys ahead.” She wrote, “I could not be more in love with you.”
Fox wrote a passionate birthday letter to Pollan, who turned sixty-three this month, saying, “She shows the people she loves the way that she feels, she showers them with love.”
“My love, my best friend, my Summer girl for eternity, and our four amazing children’s most beautiful and amazing mother.” “I really do adore you.”
In 1988, Fox and Pollan tied the knot. They first became acquainted on the set of Family Ties, where Pollan played Fox’s Alex P. Keaton’s girlfriend. They reconnected on the set of Bright Lights, Big City, and went on to date.
The marriage was consummated on July 16, 1988. Their four children are a daughter named Esmé, a twin daughter named Aquinnah and a son named Sam.
In 1991, just a few years after being married, Fox received devastating news that he had Parkinson’s disease.
In 2015, Fox said, “It was scary,” on The Late Show With David Letterman. “At 29 years old, it was the last thing I expected to hear.” I believed I had damaged my shoulder doing some trick since my pinkie jerked. “It’s Parkinson’s disease,” the doctor declared. “The good news is that you still have ten years of labor ahead of you.” he remarked.
Although Fox didn’t want to accept the condition, he claims that the support and love of his wife got him through the trying days.
“We didn’t know what to expect,” Fox said in a Today interview. One of the reasons I will always love Tracy is because she didn’t blink at that exact moment.
They have continuously showed each other love and support over the previous 35 years, and their relationship is still going strong.
“I think we really listen to each other, we are there for each other when we need each other,” Pollan said to the publication. “And when it’s necessary, we give each other space.” Just making an effort to pay attention to the circumstances and what is required right now.
“Tracy provides for every necessity in our household. All that is positive in our family and everything we achieve comes from her, according to Fox.
Fox declared that he was “not gonna be 80” and that his fight with Parkinson’s disease was “getting tougher,” but he was still “happy,” in addition to announcing his acting retirement in 2021.
Fox’s Michael J. Fox Foundation continues to support research into Parkinson’s disease in an effort to find a cure or more effective treatments. The largest non-profit sponsor of Parkinson’s disease research is the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation, which has provided over $1 billion in financing for research initiatives.
